Reese Witherspoon to Star as Astronaut in 'Pale Blue Dot'

Reese Witherspoon is following in Sandra Bullock’s steps and heading into space. 

In "Pale Blue Dot," the Oscar-winning actress will play an astronaut who finds herself a million miles from earth even when she returns home. After a long mission orbiting her home planet, Witherspoon’s character has trouble readjusting to life once she’s back on it. 

As with so many of her recent projects, Witherspoon will produce the film in addition to starring in it. Fox Searchlight has acquired the spec script.
